In partnership with Maggie’s Dundee and Ninewells Hospital
SE will spend their third and final residency day bringing music to patients and service users at both Maggie’s Dundee and Ninewells hospital. At Maggie’s, a group of musicians will add a live music element to a variety of sessions run by the centre, which is used by cancer patients and survivors as well as their friends and family, with pieces carefully chosen to enhance the purpose of each session. One of these will be a guided meditation session run by Maggie’s staff.
Meanwhile, another group of SE players will set up at Ninewells hospital to perform music across a variety of wards, including the Children’s Ward, Haematology and Chemotherapy outpatients clinic, as well as the reception area. The idea is to fill the hospital with music, providing a therapeutic relief for patients.
The musical programme at both centres will comprise pieces from Scottish Ensemble’s core repertoire, including Bach’s Goldberg Variations, Mozart’s Eine kleine Nachtmusik and Ravel’s String Quartet in F major, amongst many others.
Part of the Dundee Residency 2016
Scottish Ensemble Residencies aim to bring music, and the joy of making music, to as many people as possible. Taking place from 4 to 7 September 2016, our fifth Residency in Dundee offers four packed days of events, including participatory and community events as well as public concerts.
